Activities and Events


As well as courses, U3A offers a range of activities and other events. Most of these are available only to members, although the Lunchtime Forums and Other Activities are open to anyone.

Lunchtime Forums

A listing of U3A forums held on Tuesdays from May to November from 12:45 pm.

Forums focus on local events, politics, science, the environment and international events and run for an hour followed by Q&A.

From 2021, forums will be held in two formats:

Face-to-face sessions on the first and third Tuesdays of the month at the Main Hall, Hughes Community Centre where:

  • Entry is limited to 80 attendees
  • Pre-registration is required
  • Cost is $2 per session payable by cash or credit card. (Refreshments are not included.)

There is a hearing loop in the hall — people with hearing aids should adjust them to the 'T' position.

Online Zoom sessions on the second and fourth Tuesdays of the month where:

  • Entry is limited to 100 attendees
  • Pre-registration is required

Other Activities

U3A is approached by promoters of various events who believe that they may be of interest to our members. Some of these will be advertised on our website
Since these are not U3A events, they are open to non-members as well as members. Click on the link above to see what we are currently listing.

Walks and Tours

U3A members are able to participate in a range of National Trust (ACT) activities, including talks, walks and day bus tours to sites of historic/heritage interest.

If you are interested in taking part in any of these walks or outings, you should join U3A ACT or the National Trust (ACT) to get special prices for members for many of these activities.


The National Trust (ACT) also runs a variety of longer tours focusing on
history and heritage in regions of interest to members.

These trips are offered to U3A (ACT) and National Trust (ACT) members at special prices, so if you are interested in taking part, you should join U3A ACT or the
National Trust (ACT).

We welcome your comments and feedback via the U3A ACT Facebook site.
